Countless dragons have been depicted in Viking tales and Scandinavian folklore over the years, and some even helped to inspire some of the most popular works of fiction of all time. For Vikings, dragons were a badge of honor. The highest-ranking members of Viking society owned vessels that were frequently distinguished with the use of a dragon’s head carving on the prow. Vikings believed dragons were symbols of chaos, destruction, and death. However, they weren’t considered to be inherently evil. Rather, dragons were a sign of balance.
